Update: A rep for Teddi tells The Blast, “All In has always made the safety and wellbeing of our clients our top priority, and while we certainly encourage feedback as part of our efforts to constantly improve, we strongly object to these claims that our methods and practices were the cause of any of these alleged issues. Our approach involves around a daily intake of 1100-1200 calories, similar to many other popular (and safe) wellness programs, to help our clients jumpstart a pattern of cleaner eating and more exercise. It has been especially upsetting to hear of recent complaints, many which directly contradict the gratitude, appreciation and enthusiasm expressed during their time with us, but we will continue moving forward focusing on how we can best serve our clients.”
Over the weekend, Teddi started posting advertisements for her company All In By Teddi. The post spoke about accountability. It showed a photo of Teddi working out in Hollywood with the definition of Accountability. It read, “The quality or state of being accountable; an obligation or willingness to accept responsibility for one’s actions.”
Teddi added, “Every morning when I wake up and reach for my phone to see another client excited about their progress, I am reminded why I truly love what I do. When we aren’t feeling our best, we can’t live at our best! All IN by Teddi was created to empower all of us to be our best selves by partnering up for positive change. As the change occurs and we see the difference in clients’ moods and confident that is where the magic happens. We love providing the accountability that changes lives.”
The problem is a bunch of Teddi’s former clients recently spoke out against the program calling it dangerous. Many posted the diet plans Teddi put them on which allegedly only allowed clients to eat 500 calories per day.
A source close to Teddi’s program tells The Blast, “The JumpStart is a two-week period based on a daily caloric intake of 1100-1200 calories, similar to many other wellness programs, that helps the client reset and literally “jumpstart” a lifestyle of clean eating and exercise. This rumor that the diet is based around 500 calories is untrue – the diet has never, nor will it ever, be based around this low of a daily caloric intake. Following the JumpStart period, clients begin adding certain foods back into their diet to see what works for their bodies and what doesn’t work, helping maintain a sustainable lifestyle and differing from a “one size fits all” mentality.”
One former client wrote, “I did this program and It was a nightmare. You have to send photos pf your weight and each meal and proof of your 60 minute cardio workout everyday. You cannot drink alcohol or you are immediately dropped from the program with no refund. I calculated the calories to be 400-500 per day. It was insane. I did it for a few days and could feel myself slipping into obsessive/disordered eating so I had to stop and was out $700. I would text my accountability coaches that I was starving and they would just tell me to drink more water.”
Another said, “I quit after two days because it was so crazy and sick and unhealthy. My coach was afraid that I would ask for my money back and then Teddi started rage texting me that if I quit I’m definitely mot getting my money back!!! I was like “keep your money – this is an insane plan and you are preying on desperate people.” Never heard from them again. I was blocked from the page (probably for fear of exposing them in comments.”
Andy Cohen recently spoke out about the claims Teddi was fired from “Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” as a result of the allegations.
Andy said, “Now there’s a whole controversy online about her business. I do want to say, people are speculating that the online chatter about her business led to her dismissal. I just want to say, because I think it’s important, that one had absolutely nothing to do with the other.”
Andy defended her fitness program, All In By Teddi, saying he’s only heard good things. He said, “I remember them saying they went through the All In program and they did not have bad things to say about it. I think they said they were hungry, but he said that that program taught him how to order food in restaurants.”
The drama with Teddi’s company came days before it came out she was axed from the show. A source told the Daily Mail, “The network has not been impressed with her performance on the show. They considered cutting her last season but gave her one last chance.”
They added, “She is boring and stale and does not offer anything to the franchise with her robotic and staged delivery when interacting with the other cast members. The issue is, the other cast members don’t particularly like her and beyond Kyle, no one is friends with her.”
